PowerLung is designed and registered with the FDA as exercise equipment to train deep breathing and to strengthen and train the muscles used for inhaling and exhaling.

PowerLung will help you learn to inhale as deeply as possible and also learn to exhale as completely as possible. As you do this, you will also be making stronger the muscles used to help you breathe. This type of training also helps your breathing (respiratory) muscles remember to breathe deeply.

As with any exercise program, you should consult your physician before beginning the program. If you would like information for your physician, please direct them to our Information section for independent studies and white papers. Please let your physician know that we are happy to answer any specific questions he or she may have.

Please remember, PowerLung is exercise equipment. It is not designed to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease.
